Am I building a solid foundation that will stand against the adverse weather of life? If my life were a house, would it be standing on a foundation of stone or sand? Are my responses to the relationships, events, and circumstances rooted in the hearing and practicing of Jesus’ teaching? Do I want them to be? Do I wonder how I can do that?
The first step in Jesus’ instructions about building a foundation is to hear or listen to His words. The second step is to practice them. Jesus teaches us that the Scriptures of the Old Testament all point to Him and that He fulfills those Scriptures. His temptation, His teaching, His words from the cross, and His words to His disciples after His resurrection show a life that internalized Scripture by hearing and practicing them.
Perhaps you are a newer believer (or even seeker) who is looking for a deeper understanding of Jesus and the Bible. Maybe you are an old saint who has studied for years and is looking for an even greater understanding. Wherever you might be, we invite you to join Westminster in The Journey – a year-long engagement with the Grand Narrative of Scripture.
The Journey will begin in August of 2021 with the goal of encouraging and equipping one another to engage with Jesus through Scripture in a life-transforming way. Our journey will travel along 4 different tracks.
We encourage all of our covenant partners and visitors to participate in Track 1 – our Sunday Sermons. We urge everyone to prayerfully consider Tracks 2-4 as they look ahead to the fall. Imagine the difference a deeper relationship with Jesus and a greater understanding His Word would make in your life, your family, and our world.
